Ross Anderson on security and the Net

Ross Anderson talking buckets of common sense for the BBC about security and the Net:

It's a pity more of Ross's contribution wasn't included in the final broadcast of The Virtual Revolution: The Enemy of the State. We don't know if the teenager interviewed by Dr Krotoski was involved in the attacks on Estonia as he claims for example; but as Ross says the key element of the story was not a group of teens engaging in a simple network attack but the poor state of the Estonian critical systems security.  The BBC has made available a transcript of the interview with Ross and some of the other rushes from the programme.
